A teenager was beat to death by her brother at a home near Magnolia, Montgomery County Sheriff's deputies said.
Deputies said Estephani Boijseauneau, 17, was killed at a home on Marshburn near Glenwood about 12:30 p.m. Investigators said she suffered blunt force trauma to the head.
A witness to the beating said that the girl's 19-year-old brother, Jordan Abel Boijseauneau, beat her during an argument, detectives said. The witness, Jordan Abel Boijseauneau's 15-year-old girlfriend, was tied up with duct tape by her boyfriend during the assault, deputies said. Once she managed to cut herself free, she called 911 from a neighboring home, investigators said.
Jordan Abel Boijseauneau was found hiding inside a closet, investigators said. He suffered a self-inflicted stab wound and was taken to a hospital in critical condition, detectives said.
Friends of the victim and the suspect say they never knew them to argue or fight.
"I always seen them together," said Norma Veneros. "Nothing bad, they didn't do anything. I was really great friends with both of them, they were really great friends."
Veneros said Estephani Boijseauneau would have been a senior in high school and had aspirations to get a cosmetology license when she graduated.
"The last time I saw her she cut my hair," Veneros said.
The high school senior also loved babies and thought about becoming an ultra-sound technician.
"She was a real good person," said Veneros. "Quiet, really friendly, she was great."
Lt. Bill Bucks with the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office said the suspect is currently out on a parole after being arrested in Harris County a few months ago. Court documents indicate Boijseauneau was picked up by Tomball Police back in May and accused of sexual abuse of a child between the ages of 14 and 17 and for failing to identify himself to police. Court documents suggest he did about two weeks in jail before posting a $30,000 bond.
"We have been made aware that there was a possible suicide attempt in the Harris County jail in the last couple of months," Bucks said.
